Band Banquet place cards

I used the Quarter Note cartridge to make place cards for our Senior students at the annual band banquet.  I cut the instrument and shadow for each student's instrument and used Stickles to 'bling' up their place card.  Here are the cards sitting on the welcome table as the students arrived:

I used an oval frame file and cut it using my SCAL2 software.  For the ovals with the names, I cut them out first on my Cricut and then ran them thru my printer using the Edwardian font.

The colorguard images came from Paolo's blogpost here;  colorguard silhouettes   I had to make SVG files of the more unusual instruments, like the bass clarinet and bassoon, but it was a lot of fun.  The seniors enjoyed getting a personalized name card.
